SAN FRANCISCO (CBS /AP) — Charlie Sheen’s tour is taking a softer approach when it arrives in San Francisco later this week, with a donation planned for a Giants fan severely beaten during the Los Angeles Dodgers’ home opener.

Sheen’s publicist announced Thursday that the actor will donate the profits made from merchandise sold at Saturday’s show to benefit the fan, Bryan Stow.

Stow is a paramedic who had to be placed into a medically induced coma after being beaten on March 31 outside Dodgers Stadium.

The “Major League” star is an avid baseball fan, and has drawn cheers for sporting the hometown ball club’s jersey in cities on his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour.

Sheen is selling T-shirts and other merchandise emblazoned with some of his new catchphrases, including “Duh, Winning.”

    Charlie also pledged to donate $100 for every line of coke he snorts in the next month.

    Want to REALLY help Bryan Stow and his family? Donate directly via http://www­.support4b­ryanstow.c­om. Link to actual donation sites are conspicuously absent from Sheen’s press release.

    He is donating profits from merch sales – probably 10-25% of what you are paying for the item. Not a single penny from the $85-$110 ticket price is going to the Stow family. He reportedly earned $300,000 for the first TWO shows alone.

    This is a self-servi­ng action from a self absorbed and delusional misogynist­. He is USING this terrible tragedy to boost sales and his own agenda. Period. As he said to a heckler at one of the first shows “I already have your money, dude!” And people continue to throw more money at him.

    Donate the price of the ticket and tshirt – heck, donate HALF the price of a ticket and t-shirt and the Stow family still would receive $50-$100 instead of the $5-$10 ‘profit’ on a “Winning? duh” t-shirt. A check from +this+ non-billio­naire is already in the mail to the Stow family.

    Want to really do something for the good of humanity, Charlie? Go away. Get help. Stop hitting women.
